Lyft is North American only and even there it is limited as without a local credit card you cannot use the service (which is a fecking nuisance when you are a business traveller from afar). There is MyTaxi, but that is for hailing licensed taxis.

"We must stay focused. We are a company with limited capabilities and resources. We can only catch up with or surpass US companies within limited areas. A force applied over a smaller surface area can get us larger pressure, and then breakthroughs would be possible"
Which is why we do network infrastructure. And consumer handsets. And enterprise IT. We are very focused....
"the conventional standard for data centre racks, which date all the way back to telephone switching equipment."
It actually goes back even further. Originally the requirement was for control units used with torpedoes (which still come come in 19" and 21" sizes today). The same electronics were later used for switching systems.
Reviews vs other iPads and not Android tablets?
A poor review, one that only compares the iPad mini against it's full size stable mate. I got the impression the reviewer hasn't owned an Android tablet from the lack of discussion about them and how they compare in actual usability.
Considering the iPad mini is a response to the small form Android devices this is a huge omission. And as other reviewers have said means this is just a fan-boy review for other fan-boys to feel good about the fact they have ordered one.
Ditching the mobile
My Swedish employer got rid of all desk phones in their Swedish offices. Everyone just uses mobile phones now. They have a flat rate call agreement with their local operator so that all calls are routed back to the corporate network for IP transmission to wherever they are destined.
They wanted to roll this out across Europe but they are getting a huge push back from the mobile operators. They are worried that flat rate calling like this will cannibalise revenues, and ultimately lead to lower ARPU. Even though they would be picking up a considerably large chunk of revenue.
"scaling up from just two days of sales it is still likely that Apple will make its first year sales targets."
And if you scale up the opening day's sales of harry Potter (11m in 2 days in the US and UK alone) then by then end of the year they will have sold over 2 billion copies!!!!!
Lazy lazy journalism.
MNC Roaming costs
I am involved in doing assessments of voice TCO for multinationals. We have foudn that it is about 20% of all voice communication TCO, despite the fact that only around 15-30% of employees have mobiles. On average when you give an employee an mobile the cost per extension is 6 times that for a fixed employee.
Must companies I talk to feel they are being screwed by mobile operators.
